Brandywine literary festival to feature poet Mihaela Moscaliuc

March 23, 2012

In honor of National Poetry Month, Penn State Brandywine will welcome poet Mihaela Moscaliuc as the featured reader at its 16th annual Litapalooza Literary Festival at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 3, in the Tomezsko Classroom Building lounge.

The open mic portion of Litapalooza encourages students to read, recite, narrate, rap, or sing their own creative compositions. The festival strives to highlight and celebrate the creativity of Brandywine students.

Penn In Hand, the campus’ student literary publication, will be distributed at the event, which is free and open to the public. Penn In Hand is a collection of students’ creative works and is published by Penn State Brandywine students in conjunction with the English department.

Moscaliuc is the author of "Father Dirt" (winner of the Kinereth Gensler Award). Her works, which include poems, reviews, translations and articles, have appeared in numerous poetry journals, including The Georgia Review, Prairie Schooner, TriQuarterly, New Letters, Poetry International, Arts & Letters, Pleiades, Connecticut Review and West Branch. She has taught at Monmouth and Salisbury universities; she currently directs the Drew University Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Poetry Program.

Litapalooza is funded by the Brandywine Student Activities Fund. For more information, please contact Distinguished Professor of English Adam J. Sorkin at or 610-892-1444.
